Jacky M
£40.00 to £48.00 ph

Online English Language Tutor

Hello. I am a specialist English Language tutor and am currently helping home-schooled students in years 9,10 and 11 who need extra support with GCSE English. I taught for many years in a college setting and for the past 6 years in student's homes or online. I believe that confidence and self belief are the keys to successful learning. I love building a rapport with my students to enable this confidence to grow. I will discuss needs and worries with the student and tailor lessons to overcome present difficulties and to take account of any special interests they may have. The majority of my students are struggling with anxiety and low self esteem. My own daughter was out of school for a number of years. The change to secondary school was a traumatic event for her and it was clear that alternative arrangements had to be made. I understand that school life is not for everyone.

I also enjoy reading, visiting places of interest, going to the theatre, and swimming. I firmly believe that one-to-one tuition by a highly experienced tutor can immensely help students, whether they are struggling or not.

Reviews for English Language Tutors in Poole

5.0

Shiralee is an exceptional tutor, having supported my struggling granddaughter for 2 years in English and Maths. She is very patient and kind, making learning fun, while helping her understand work she finds difficult. Shiralee has given her confidence in learning, motivating her to do well in class. School reports have improved tremendously over the period. Teachers tell us how much she has improved, happily working hard and contributing well in class. Shiralee gives us weekly feedback and supports us to help our granddaughter. We are very happy to recommend her thoroughly. Mrs Caroline Clarke

Having experienced other tutors, we feel that we have "struck gold" with Shiralee. She creates a calm and peaceful atmosphere which promotes learning and has helped my son catch up. He is happy to attend and is more confident in his learning in school. Mrs Jenny Hancock

We owe Jacky so much for helping our son to build up not only his confidence in English but to help him engage again with learning after coming out of mainstream school. Jacky worked to gain our sons trust by tutoring him in a nurturing, relaxed and non-pressured environment and we could quickly see his progress. Jacky is very patient and goes the extra mile to plan engaging lessons, specific to the childs interests and needs. She is, in my sons words, attentive and caring. We wouldnt hesitate to recommend Jacky to anyone needing tailored support for their child due to her years of experience and extensive academic knowledge. Mrs R. Ross

Fiona has only worked with my child for a short time but her teaching method was really valuable. She was very informative and helped my child make simple steps to improve his work. She provided positive and constructive feed back to work she looked at in her own time and enabled him to gain in his self confidence in writing as well as improve the quality of his writing. She has a very gentle and positive nature with the children and I would recommend her. Mrs Munro

Ellie was thrilled beyond words to have been awarded a clean sweep of the highest possible grades across all her GCSEs - so 9s in all the English syllabuses and A*s in all the Welsh syllabuses. But as you can imagine, she is most proud of her 9 in English Literature and her 9 in English Language. These grades were both hard-won, & they would simply not have been possible without you. We would both like to sincerely thank you for your fabulous tutoring - at all times, you were hugely organised and explained things patiently and clearly. You demystified English for Ellie - in your sessions with her, the pace was reassuring, everything was always easy to understand, and in particular Ellie really appreciated the way you built on her ideas (rather than just providing the correct answers), and then focused her writing in a way that made it high-scoring. You gave her the formula for winning top grades, and so then her confidence grew - from thinking that English was just always going to be a blind spot for her, to instead realising that no, she could actually do well in this subject!! Thank you so much for your intervention - it has been game-changing. Mrs. Louise Meredith

We contacted Michelle after our son had not done as well as we had hoped in his 11 plus English exam and first term of Y7 exams (termly reports with grades of around B1-B2). Although our son worked hard but as being a bilingual boy from an international family, it seemed this was the best outcome he could have achieved, which also disappointed him. Since meeting with Michelle in just a few weeks, our son has grown in confidence and tells us he has learnt a lot and got a much better understanding of how to cope with learning English and demonstrating his knowledge & skills. Michelle offers her own well-prepared teaching materials, and she has a relaxed and innovative approach to tutoring, really taking time to get to know the student and gearing her teaching to their learning style. During the past few months, Michelle has pushed our son to work beyond his boundaries and comfort zone but does this in a gentle and kind way and has formed a very good relationship with him, which is helping him to learn and to be guided. Now, we have received some very positive feedback from our sons English teacher from school, and he was really happy to receive his first grade A mark for his Spring term end exam. Well done! We know we have chosen the right person to support our son in learning his English, and we would highly recommend Michelle. My son is 12 years old now and currently attends a local grammar school in Bath. Mrs. Nancy Yan

Online English Language Tutor

I started as an ESL teacher in South Korea in 2004 working with children and young adults. Following my PGCE, I worked mainly at universities and colleges, teaching various foundation and IELTS preparation courses. In Oman, I worked as an IELTS examiner alongside my main position at a college and spent some time after this teaching IELTS, general and business English courses in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. In addition, I spent two years writing ESL textbooks full-time. My most recent teaching position was for an international school in Vietnam (The Dewey Schools, Hai Phong) where I taught Humanities and Social Studies to a Year 9 ESL class. This involved substantially rewriting the curriculum and modifying assessed tasks to fit in with the language ability of the students, as well as delivering a tailored ESL curriculum to support their learning.

Please provide your tuition requirements above.

Tuition with a qualified English Language teacher at your home in Poole costs from £48.00 ph. Online tuition with a qualified English Language teacher costs from £42.00 ph. Create your own small tuition group and English Language tuition costs from £17.50 ph.

Because we only ever work with qualified and experienced English Language teachers in Poole, you will always get a highly experienced teacher who is safe, reliable and up to speed with the current curriculum and exam requirements. There is no excellent learning without excellent teaching, and our English Language teachers are expected to teach in a way that inspires and motivates. We have over 20,000 talented teachers providing tuition, chosen for their broad range of experience, professionalism, academic specialisms, passion, and dedication to their students. We only ever offer qualified teachers as tutors, as we believe professional teachers provide the highest quality of tuition.

Location
Home Tuition: Involves an English Language tutor coming to your home in Poole to provide one-on-one instruction. This offers convenience as you don't need to travel. Online Tuition: This can take place anywhere with an internet connection. Small Group Tuition: Typically with between 2 to 4 children, and often occurs in a physical location such as your home, though it can also be online.

Individual Attention
Home Tuition: Offers the highest level of individual attention, as the English Language tutor focuses solely on one student. Online Tuition: Still allows for one-to-one attention, but it may be slightly less personal than home tuition due to potential distractions. Small Group Tuition: Offers less individual attention as the English Language tutor must divide their time and attention among multiple students.

Cost
Home Tuition: This tends to be more expensive because it involves one-on-one teaching, and the English Language tutor is required to travel to your home, in Poole. Online Tuition: Often more affordable than home tuition as your English Language tutor does not need to travel but may still cost more than small group tuition. Small Group Tuition: Generally, this is the most cost-effective option, as the costs are shared among several families.

Flexibility
Home Tuition: Offers flexibility in terms of scheduling and curriculum, as your English Language tutor will only be working with your child. Online Tuition: Provides flexibility in terms of location and may offer a wider selection of English Language tutors. Small Group Tuition: Lessons will be more difficult to schedule as lesson times will have to fit in with other families.

Interaction
Home Tuition: Offers in-person interaction, which can be beneficial for students who learn better through face-to-face communication. Online Tuition: Provides interaction through video conferencing tools and chat, which can be engaging but may not suit everyone's learning style. Small Group Tuition: Allows for peer interaction, which can benefit collaborative learning and discussions.

The choice between home, online, or small group English Language tuition in Poole depends on your preferences, budget, and the student's specific educational needs. Each option has advantages and disadvantages, so it's essential to consider these factors when deciding.
